Free Marketing Advice
I’m delighted to be one of the experts on hand at the Pop Up Business Café in Pocklington on Thursday 15th June. Along with 6 other local business experts we have volunteered to have our brains picked, to share our expertise, and give free practical answers to questions on a range of business topics.
Free Marketing Advice
That’s right, this event is completely free to attend, you are welcome to turn up when you like, leave when you like and even come back again if you feel like it. The Pop Up Café will be open from 9am until 1pm with informal drop in sessions throughout the morning for you to get some genuinely free business advice.
I’ll be available for drop in sessions to offer advice on all aspects of marketing, based on what your individual business needs, whether it be as simple as setting up your social media to developing your overall marketing strategy.
All we ask is that you book your free ticket on Eventbrite so that we know you are coming.
What is a Business Pop Up Cafe?
Pop Up business cafes are organised by How’s Business, the growth hub for the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership and take place around the region. I’d heard really good things about the Tadcaster and Selby Pop Ups so when one popped up in Beverley last year I went along. I found it really useful to get answers to some of my finance and accounting questions and the experts I met were open, friendly and really approachable.
Why am I getting involved?
Well, as well as flattering as it is for my ego to be invited as an expert, I wanted to be able to give something back. When I launched Your Marketing Specialist back in January 2016 I was extremely grateful for the help and support I received from people I met through networking and co-working. Free events like this make it easier for small business and start ups to get the professional advice they need in an accessible and friendly format. It can be overwhelming to approach a professional accountant or tax advisor or marketing specialist with what you think is a small or silly question, but actually that question could have a massive impact on your business. Being able to ask these questions in an informal one to one session is like gold dust.
Another reason I’m pleased to be involved is because I love giving marketing support, and one of the problems with lots of marketing advice is that it’s very generic, it doesn’t always apply to your business, every business is different. That’s why I run Marketing Surgeries for small business and the Popup Café seemed like a good extension of these and a way to reach more people and help more businesses as part of my mission to help 1,000 businesses with their marketing.
The event is completely free, bringing together a group of expert advisers from the local business community, to have their brains picked, and share some of their knowledge to help other local businesses. It's not about selling, or networking; it's about genuinely giving free advice to help our business community.
